EP5 to EP6 NW'04: Windows vs UNIX


Hi *,

we are facing the issue to move our EP5-SP6 to newest version EP6 NW'04.

Beside the strategy to use (migration using migration tools, migration with partial tool usage or migration without using migration tools = transport&recreate) we need also to consider which platform to adopt:

<b>Windows (actual platform) or UNIX?</b>

We are wondering which keys factors needs to be considered for a 'platform evaluation matrix', to do the right choice: scalability, robustness, team skills, implementation path (if we do a migration using the migration tools we need to first migrate and than perform an OS/DB migration), hw costs, existing productive customers (I guess that there are much more productive installations on Windows rather than UNIX), knowledge of SAP (OSS) on Microsoft/UNIX, ecc.

Could you help us to understand which is the better choice between Windows and UNIX?

Thanks in advance.
